Cool Quick Fruit Tapioca

In a large bowl or Tupperware container, stir together 1/2 cup small or large pearl tapioca with a quart of your favorite fruit juice calming to your dosha (pineapple coconut, blueberry pomegranate, or apricot are some tasty possibilities). If you’re running off to school, work, or play, let it rest in the fridge for a few hours, then put it in a medium sauce pan on medium heat on the stove, stirring frequently. As it thickens, reduce heat to low until it is the thickness you like. Generally you’d expect it to be pudding-ish. Cool. (Also nice hot in cold weather) If you haven’t got the time to let it sit a bit (this cuts cooking time and improves its consistency) you can put it on right away, stirring more often and waiting a little longer for it to thicken.

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can toss in fresh fruit, garnish with coconut or mint or fresh organic pansies, whatever you like. Bon appetit!
